Databases hang on 'Populating...'

edited November 16

I updated to 7.5.14 an now a lot of databases hang on the 'populating' and never show the list of tables. I'd like to download the prior version but can't find a place to get it. FWIW, this issue is primarily when accessing local databases on MSSQL server. Al the DB are the same but some hang. Azure DBs seem to work OK. Never seen this before so I am assuming it's a but in this version.

  • First, look in the %localappdata%\LINQPad\Updates7.AnyCPU folder. If there's a 7.4.9 folder, you can run it from there - use the "Run LINQPad (x64) version 7.4.9.cmd" file to ensure that it doesn't forward to the newer version.

    Otherwise, you can download the zip from https://linqpad.blob.core.windows.net/updates7/7_4_9 - use the -noforward switch when starting LINQPad.

    Regarding the hanging, have you checked whether a NuGet restoration dialog or an authentication dialog is hidden behind the main window? Are they LINQ-to-SQL connections or EF Core connections?

  • I do have the 7.4.9 folder and running it from the .cmd file works and I can access all the DB I could previously.

    Some info:

    • Using Ling to SQL connections
    • MSSQL version 15.0.2000.5 (developer edition)
    • Appears to only be a problem on the local sql server, all Azure databases work fine (we have hundreds of azure DBs and all seem OK)
    • I don't see any dialogs popping up for permissions or nuget when accessing a DB, on the local server it's just a master login.
    • We use a database per tenant and some populate and some don't even though they are exactly the same schema, same permissions, etc.
    • It appears to happen to DB that were recently accessed, like the one for the tenant I was working in most recently. Tenant databases that I haven't touched in a while populate OK.

    Thanks for the workaround. That will help for now.

  • Do you have .NET 7 installed?

  • Also, when you right-click the connection and choose Refresh, does it fix the problem?

  • I've got the same problem.
    Right-click and Refresh fixes the problem.
